Chicago Ravinia Festival Summary

Event Overview: The Ravinia Music Festival takes place each Summer in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park, about 25 miles north of the Windy City. This popular Chicago Summer concert series attracts a diverse mix of musicians and performing acts from all different genres, and the Chicago Ravinia Festival takes place almost exclusively outdoors.  

What to Expect: You'll enjoy reasonable Chicago concert tickets prices, a laid-back family friendly atmosphere, and great music at the Chicago Ravinia Festival.

  • Lawn Seating: Perhaps the most fun you can have at the Ravinia Chicago Festival is on the lawn seats. These Ravinia Park Festival tickets are cheap, and you can bring a blanket and spread out with your family while taking in some of the best live music in Chicago.
  • Popular Musicians: While many of the Ravinia Music Festival acts are smaller and not as well-known, their headlining acts are some of the most popular touring musicians in the country. The 2011 Chicago Ravinia Festival featured performances by Maroon 5, Jennifer Hudson and, of course, the band Chicago. 
  • World and Classical Music: Looking for something different? Check out the classical and world stages at the Ravinia Music Festival Chicago, which showcases some of the most talented International musicians touring Chicago.

Inside Knowledge: If you're traveling to the Chicago Ravinia Festival and would like to avoid the hassle of traffic and parking, the convenient Chicago Metra Rail drops music fans off at the Tyler Gate-Ravinia Park Stop, and costs just $7 round-trip.  

Event Hints: 

  • Don't Go Hungry ... Or Thirsty: There are a number of delicious Chicago eateries available at the Ravinia Park Festival, as well as the to-go beverage window by the main gates - The Gatehouse - which offers cold beer and non-alcoholic beverages as well.
